Sunny picnic in January
Jan 2021
I have explored this NP several times but this was a brilliant sunny Sunday in Januaty & we had a picnic at the main site on the mountain. It was busy for the time of year but still peaceful with fantasic views.

Adventure tours with ATV are great!
Jul 2020
Beautiful country, amd mountain. Still untouched by modern life. The ATV tour is great and not too demanding. You can choose from 2, 4 and 6 hours tours. The problem is that this is not ECO tourism. The vehicles are noisy and polluting the environment.

Weekend visit
Feb 2020
The park itself is great with stunning views of the lake, mountains & Albania across the lake. There are notice boards at all the viewpoints & in several of the nearby settlements giving general information & a comprehensive guide to the hiking trails. However, with one exception, these notices are so faded that you can no longer see any writing on them & some have been defaced by graffiti. I would suggest 2 improvements; Firstly, when new notices are put on the boards, cover them with a perspex sheet which will slow the fading & make them easy to clean. Secondly, there is no "you are here" icon so it's not easy to see where the trails are in relation to your position & as there is little or no signal it is not often possible to use GPS.. Perhaps paper maps could be sold when you enter the park?

Beautiful nature, but few possibilities for hiking

The nature is impressive, beautiful views, but too little hiking routes to explore the park and get a chance to see the wild animals

Beautiful national park
Sep 2019
Went for a hike in the national park. We hired a guide (Ivana from Free Pass, Ohrid) who was excellent. She collected us from our hotel and drove us to the park. We had a nice walk in the park and a picnic.

I would recommend a guide as the park is large and we could not find any maps.

It is good not to hike alone in case of an accident.

We did not see anyone else while we were hiking.

Nice hiking area
Sep 2019 • Couples
We came here to do some hiking and certainly weren't disappointed. The nature is really worth seeing, it's just a pity that at certain places there's a lot of trash since some people don't seem to care to clean up after themselves.
Anyway, you can catch nice views on both lake Ohrid and lake Prespa, the hiking tracks are well marked (at least those we took although descriptions from earlier were suggesting otherwise) and I would certainly recommend to check it out if you are into nature and hiking.

National Park Galicica can be driven into leading to great views . Entrance needs to be paid but you will be rewarded with another glance of Macedonian nature .

Lovely drive with great views
Sep 2019
We drove through the park following the mountain road from Lake Preseka to Lake Ohrid. It’s a narrow, winding road which, like many in Macedonia, isn’t of very good quality but the scenery more than makes up. It’s a bit frustrating on the Prespa side as the lake views are limited due to their being so many trees and when you do get the chance of a view the lake is invariably behind you. The mountains at the top of the pass are really lovely and if you have time you can hike to the mountain top Magara viewpoint but it’s a 2 hour walk each way. Once over the top of the pass the views of Lake Ohrid are stunning and this side of the mountains has far fewer trees to obscure the views. At the bottom of the mountain road on the Ohrid side there is a national park checkpoint where you are charged a 200 denar park entry fee. There was no checkpoint on the Prespa side so, in theory you get away without paying if you went up and down from a Prespa.

Perfect place for,hikers and nature lovers
Sep 2019 • Friends
Definitely a vacation area especially for hikers and nature lovers. Lake Ohrid is mostly where we appreciated this area with well marked hiking trails. The area we visited was absolutely beautiful and worth the ride. Make sure you visit the old Town.
